Ingenza is celebrating reaching the final of both the Life Sciences Company of the Year and the Innovator of the Year categories at the 2017 Made in Scotland awards. Now in its second year, the awards highlight the achievements of Scottish companies in sectors such as life sciences, food and drink, engineering, manufacturing and recycling.
The Life Sciences Company of the Year award is open to businesses based in Scotland that have driven novel advances with significant market impact, while the Innovator of the Year award acknowledges the launch or creation of a product or process with substantial commercial potential. Ingenza has been recognised for its proprietary combinatorial genetic platform, inABLE®, which helps to improve the speed and predictability of bioengineering prcoesses. The inABLE® platform opened up new commercial opportunities for Ingenza, expanding its customer base to incorporate a wide range of sectors, including bio-based chemicals/agrochemicals and biopharma.
Ingenza’s recognition by the Made in Scotland awards is a testament to its integrated approach, combining molecular biology, fermentation and process chemistry capabilities to help realise new commercial opportunities in bio-based manufacturing. This unique blend of expertise enables the company to accelerate bioprocess development, driving the delivery of greener processes for application across the chemical, polymer, energy and pharma sectors.
The Made in Scotland award winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Glasgow Science Centre on the 19th of April, attended by representatives from each of the finalists.
